HELP - overcooked pork loin roast

I wanted to make the Dr.Pepper Pork for SuperBowl Sunday... problem- could not find my slow cooker lid... your guess is as good as mine as to what happened to it... actually my guess has something to do with teenagers, breakage and tossing it without my knowledge.

Anyway, had to convert to oven time/temp. I had a 6 lb roast, went for 325 degrees & 3 hours in my enameled cast iron dutch oven. In just 2.5 hours the temp was already at 175... so not what I was expecting. My beautiful roast came out so dry. There was still plenty of liquid in the pot & the carrots came out yummy & shockingly not mushy considering.

Any ideas how to utilize this? There's a lot left over. I'm thinking about trying to mince it and mix into a wonton filling or something, though not really sure how to easily mince the meat... wondering if I can put it through my kitchenaid shredder.

Thanks for any/all ideas!!! ♥

    How about making it into hash? You could freeze single servings for breakfast or whatnot. Rose's recipe is a save for me too. Or how about pork taco's?

    Tacos and hash are great suggestions. A suggestion for a new lid. I see crockpot lids all the time at the local secondhand stores for like a dollar. That is a good place to find a cheap replacement lid.

    Pulse in your proccessor a few of times (or hand chop) then, using your favorite bbq sauce, make bbq sandwiches.
